Quotes of the Week

Goose: "Mom, if you lived when Louis Armstrong lived, you would have to sit on the back of the bus because you are dark. I would be in the front and that would make me sad." Then he got tears in his eyes. (I wonder what he would think of Arizona right now? Probably not much, me either.)

"Just because we can't go to church doesn't mean we can't give glory to God today." Love it. The only problem is that this quote was followed by him antagonizing his brother.

"Who is the patron saint when you hurt yourself?" I love that he wanted to pray and ask for intercession. He gets it.

Squirt: "I thought I had a right to privacy in my bedroom." This could be the funniest thing I have ever heard. As far as I'm concerned, there is no such thing as privacy, Squirt. Just ask any of my ex-boyfriends.

    Well, if you're a good parent - which you seem to be, you probably told Goose that there are those in Arizona who did something illegal. Hence the term, illegal alien. Therefore they have to accept the consequences and go back home to Mexico.

    Unfortunately, of course, because of the actions of those who broke the law, there will be those who are USA citizens that will be profiled and they will have to prove their citizenship.

    Like most stereotypes, the reason there is profiling is because there is truth behind it. I would guess you have no problem with profiling Muslims, for example?
